Not long at all. It helped to read all the suggestions from members of the forum, who provided lots of information on how to promote your store. It just depends on what people are shopping for.

Tommy your store still doesn't look open. You are still saying worn clothing is brand new without tags. No logo. No picture under where you should have a logo.

It was a while before I had my first sale but they are coming along now. Read all the suggestions and PROMOTE!

First, I think you have to have a minimum number of items in your store for it to be attractive to folks.

Second, always be tuning your store: pictures, logos, FAQs!

Third, promote and cross-promote! I have a niche store and I include a flyer about it in all the packages I send from my other stores on vendio and eBay.

Fourth, did I say promote??

Good luck!

Personally, I would not shop at your store. First, it looks neglected. You don't have a F&Q, terms and so on. Second and this was a very much sales killer was your "All sales final" What if I don't like your product when I actually see it in my hands...does that mean I'm out? Just my personal views. Hope this helps.

I have to agree... I see this WAYYYY to often! Mad

I am setting up, yet ANOTHER store (so glad they don't limit us LOL )
But I keep it on hold until ... #1 it looks pretty ... #2 ALL info is typed in.
Payments, faq, terms, contact. #3... set up all the categories I want & #4 start loading products.... THEN take off hold & start promoting.

I never skip any of those steps. Too many "newbies" think "stick in some products & buyers will come"...

I just want to YELL THIS ACROSS THE FORUM!... IT DON"T HAPPEN THAT WAY!

Ok... now I'm done yelling Laughing

I'm still waiting but then again I still have tons to get listed I only have 23 items so that's not a big selection.

I agree that being open minded to suggestions from members can be a big help. When I listed my first batch last week I had all sorts of stuff I had overlooked and messed up and it probably would have taken me some time and even cost me customers if other members had not been kind enough to critique my store.

I was on here for about 2 months before I got a sale. I did not advertising and had forgotten that I had even set up a store here, in fact. Then suddenly the sales started coming in. Now there're pretty stready and I am working on advertising myself more and getting myself up in the search results. I've read the thread on promoting yourself and they're pretty helpful. Good luck.

Tommy,

My first sale came the third day after I opened the store and still adding inventory. Customer found me somehow. Since then, most sales have come by promoting my store rather than relying on search engine traffic to find me.

You might find the following threads helpful;

Good luck

Tommy.

You have very confusing ads. "NEW without tags, but listed as a USED product, worn once or twice, huh?

I think Maggie once asked you if you had permission to use the "Tommy Hilfiger" name...do you?

You have some really nice products...just some confusing and contradicting ads. Be as accurate as you can, it helps.

I'm new as well and I hope I am not coming across as rude. Sad
There was some GREAT advice given above (I took heed to some as well).

Good Luck to you.

HI!

We've been here in eCRATER just last month but we're so fortunate and thankful to those who visited and bought items on our site. We know that eCRATER has a lot of potential customers that's why we establish a store here. WE also promoted and exposed our site to other websites.

Promote. promote..promote..

Good luck and more power!
